some of the other applicants. >> yes, mr. chairman. supervisor campos: my question would be what would you have to say about -- >> i would try to keep it down to a few words. in jean-paul's case, as a planner, i think he brings a great deal of expertise to the board. in the case of claudine, again, someone who has served the treasure island authority with distinction, and again, accessible. all three candidates, in my case, it is important you understand they have committed to jobs for local residents. they understand the issues because we have talked about it until blood runs out of the years, so i want to thank the committee for allowing me to speak on all three, and ask that you move their candidacies forward -- and i ask that you move their candidacies forward. thank you. >> good morning, supervisors.
